Potential Dietary Advice For Preventing Crohn's Disease Flare-Ups

Try Eating Low-Fiber Fruits And Vegetables

Usually, fruits and vegetables are considered part of a healthy diet. However, they may not be as healthy as many individuals think. Many fruits and vegetables seem to contain significant amounts of fiber. This should, like whole wheat, help an individual's digestion. They should also keep them feeling full for longer. However, individuals with Crohn's disease appear to struggle with eating many fruits and vegetables due to their fiber content. They may need to avoid high fiber fruits and vegetables, such as cherries, broccoli, plums, unpeeled apples, and cabbage.

Thus, some Crohn's disease patients may want to try eating low-fiber fruits and vegetables. This means considering bananas, squash, peeled cucumber, pumpkin, and bell peppers. They may also be able to eat some applesauce, as this may reduce the digestion needed for apples. Cooking vegetables and fruit may help reduce the insoluble fiber that they contain. This appears to make digesting them easier.
